In the first week of January 2012, I spent 4 nights at this quaint little hotel right in the heart of the city of Quito. The prices were very reasonable, the owners and help were very helpful and understanding, and the decor was pretty eclectic. Soon after arriving, I felt very comfortable sitting in the lounge by the fire, and asking the desk help for tips about the town. My Spanish language skills are muy mal, but they all spoke very intelligible English. Getting a taxi to anywhere in Quito is easy from here (and amazingly cheap - do not rent a car), and you are just a short walk from the amazing "Park of Little Trees", Cultural Museum, and several restaurants. The rooms were clean, historic looking, but could use a little updating. For me, they were just fine (Istayed twice in two different rooms).
It's not the Ritz, but it's comfortable, friendly, reasonable, and a safe haven. Overall I'd give it 3.5 stars, but that wasn't an option.
